Unable to close Crypto Sell Positions


Recommended Posts

I understand the FCA legislation regarding crypto, but I'm based in Australia not the UK and unable to open new positions. More concerning, I'm unable to close short positions.

Please can you advice what is going on?

Hi, i am from Germany and also unable to open new positions - and the worst about it -  I'm unable to close my own short positions. (?!)   SO - please help!

Hi 

Yes IG have given I believe a statement on NON TRADING for options  or CFD on crypto (which I see no reason why it should not apply worldwide) I maybe wrong on that. All open trades will automatically close on 23/March/2021 - but mine got stopped out a day or two ago. Hope you didn't have too big a position on your short - it will recover but IMHO take a week or more to settle as very volatile at the moment since Elon's statement - but there are very few free lunches in markets. All the best

I have professional account status and am able to trade crypto but am being prevented from closing in-the-money short positions.

This is the second day I've had these issues.IMG_8859.thumb.jpeg.97af938853ff3520fe1db358454f0d12.jpeg

    • IG's "Trade of the Week" video (26-Apr) suggested going LONG on GBPCAD. After I'd put on a small position I read your post on CAD strength. I wished I'd seen your post first  I was stopped out within a few days.
    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........
